For Mother's Day: ? Best covers/other items for Kindle Fire and Touch

Hi!

I'm getting to choose my Mother's Day gift which will be accessories for both my KF and Kindle Touch


Would like suggestions for
1. Covers for both
(Currently I take in box or wrap in cloth to transport. Want them to have real "homes" aka covers )

2. Stylus for KF and possibly for Kindle Touch if available

3. Screen protector advice for KF
Ex. Is it recommended to get a screen protector for the KF? I'd like to protect screen and reduce glare.
This would be my first experience installing which I've read can be tricky

4. Will probably buy thru Amazon since have credit card points.
But an seeking advice on alternative places to buy that
may be less expensive

Thanks for your help!

Oberon makes wonderful covers but there is no way one would be ready for Mother's Day at this time. They make them when they get the order in and then ship them.

A screen protector is not really needed. There is limited glare on the Kindle and they provide little protection. A cover is a much better idea.

Thanks for info!

Even if won't be here for Mother's Day that's ok.

My 7 year old suggested I pick what I want and he and his Dad would go out and get it.

Thanks

Another vote for Oberon.....this sounds like an ad! . They are truly beautiful and worth the extra money, IMHO. The customer service is top-notch as well. I highly recommend them!
